Why is it that you often solve the problem yourself soon after you post it
Anyway, for others who might have this issue....
I checked out the repository using the :pserver: method which of course
gets written to the CVSROOT\root datafile
so when I changed CVSROOT env var to use sspi, it made no difference to the
existing checked out repositories.
Run a little script to change :pserver: to :sspi: etc fixed the problem.
(also, could have just checked everything back in again using pserver and
then check it out once more using sspi).
I guess these things are sent to try us.!!!!
